Except for the legal piece of paper, my partner and I are a marriage in every possible way. So tell me, Maggie Gallagher, exactly how are we not? She would probably answer, "Well, Jim, you're just not."
Proponents of the view that "marriage is between a man and a woman" are losing ground. It comes down to the ever-important question: "Why does it have to be that marriage is only between a man and woman?"
